Making a comeback after close to a whole decade, the Bukit Timah Railway is now re-opened to public! For parents who long to reminisce the old-school rails, kids can now take your child along for these throwback rides.

While trains are no longer in operation, this site still offers a repertoire of activities for kids to have a look into the past – the original ticketing window, a heritage museum and a cafe resembling the old staff quarters. If you’re up for an adventure, you can even complete your day out with a trek to Clementi!

When: At your own time

Price: Free

Over the course of 2 Saturdays, the Astronaut Experience offers a slew of activities for kids learn about outer space. Featuring a live digital show at the immersive 360 Omni Theatre, participants can also engage in hands-on activities making their own Telescope and VR Apollo where they can simulate the moon landing (how exciting!)

Do not be fooled by the looks of homey Singaporean feasts – the sophistication of dining as a Singaporean is surely not to be undermined. As we celebrate Racial Harmony Day this July, the Indian Heritage Centre is offering an etiquette workshop for the art of banana leaf dining.

Need an entertaining method to help your child brush up their half-past six Mandarin?

From 27 July, KC Arts Centre will be holding an hour-long performance, starring the famous story of two siblings having to navigate their way through a sinister encounter in the forest. While it may seem like a story that’s been told over and over, we are sure the experience will be different in Mandarin – at least for your kids!

8. Snoopy Snow Exhibition


Living in a tropical country, if there’s one thing that even adults get wide-eyed over, it’s definitely snow.

This July, experience snow and sub-zero temperatures with your family at the PEANUTS Snow Hangout. Whilst being mystified by this foreign climate, there are also many activities for kids for your family to have a good giggle over – a 10m snow luge, a snow excavator site, a snow slide and snow fall! This is basically Snow City, but in the East – with Snoopy and friends!

Location: Changi Airport T3

When: 4 to 11 July

Price: $18 per pass

9. Have a Taste of Melbourne Right Here in Singapore

Here’s one for the foodie families. In particular, those who might be travel-deprived.

For the whole month of July, 11 cafes – with the likes of Club Street Wine Room, Symmetry and Meatsmith – are participating in the Melbourne Brunch Festival. If starting the weekend with a good cuppa and savoury toast sounds right up your alley, it’s time to get your booking sorted. The best activities for kids might just be the ones which end up conking them out after stuffing their tummies full.

Location: Various Participating Vendors

When: Until 31 July

Whether you are looking for activities for dining, arts and culture, or entertainment, we’ve got you covered. Now it’s time to start July off with a bang.
